Amazon is slashing $50 off the price of an annual Audible Gold membership from now through April 5th, 2019. That means you’ll pay just $99.50 for access to thousands of titles through this popular audiobook subscription service.
This offer is technically only available to new users, but some Slickdealers noted that they were able to cancel their previous Audible subscription, or contact Amazon’s customer service, and jump on the new-user membership price.
Keep in mind that Audible subscriptions renew automatically each year at the full price. However, you can cancel your subscription any time.
An annual Audible Gold membership gets you 12 audiobook credits right away to use throughout the year. Each credit is worth one Audible book of any kind, regardless of the price.
Monthly subscribers receive one new credit each month. By paying for the whole year up front, however, you can get all 12 credits at once.
You also get two Audible Originals of your choice each month. If you take advantage of all 36 book credits, your membership cost breaks down to about $2.76 per book.
And as Slickdealer kmartind points out, Amazon also offers Audible members daily deals and other specials for discounted books.
Some of the Amazon Audible titles are notably read by their authors — Michelle Obama’s Becoming, for example, and Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood.
If fantasy is more your style, Slickdealer vanye111 recommended the books of Ryk E. Spoor, as the narrator gets into character with unique voices — one of the many benefits of getting your books via audio.
